Assure Infusions to Build a Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Facility in Bartow
The Central Florida Development Council (CFDC) and the Bartow Economic Development Council (Bartow EDC) are pleased to announce the decision by Assure Infusions, Inc to bring pharmaceutical manufacturing to Polk County.
“We are excited at the opportunity to bring a state-of-the-art, fully automated pharmaceutical manufacturing facility, with advanced robotics, to Polk County. Once operational, Assure Infusions will be a highly technical showcase of advanced manufacturing. The support provided by the CFDC, City of Bartow and the Bartow EDC were key to our site selection decision,” said Alex Lucio, CEO of Assure Infusions.
The new 60,000 square foot facility will be located in Bartow, Florida. “Welcoming Assure Infusions to Polk County and their commitment to Bartow is a win-win for our community. Having a local manufacturer of sterile intravenous fluids, providing critical supplies for our hospital systems is critical to Polk’s growing health sciences industry,” said Sean Malott, CEO and President of CFDC.
“The Bartow EDC is very pleased that Assure Infusions has chosen the city of Bartow to locate its fully automated pharmaceutical manufacturing facility,” said Denise Bohde, President of the Bartow EDC. “With a global supply shortage, this will be beneficial to all central Florida hospitals; as well as beneficial to Bartow, in that more than 100 high paying local jobs will be created.”
